What I've Been Up to Lately

Finals at Georgia State are approaching very soon. In fact, I will be finished with my freshman year of college on May 7! 

That said, I'm thinking of plans for this Summer. Right now, it's looking like I'll be visiting my brother in Thailand. I'm looking forward to exploring caves and waterfalls and maybe even learning to ride a motorbike. This also means I'm getting a tan so I'll be less likely to get sun poisoning while abroad. That'll be different-- I haven't been tan for close to a decade. Hopefully, the trip works out. I should know in a week. 

It's a monkey in Thailand my brother saw.

Other than that, I look forward to spending some time with meaningful people in my life. I might even go on a few impromptu adventures. Also, my Summer reading list awaits! I plan on reading On The Road by Jack Kerouac in addition to reading more Faulkner and delving into a Thomas Merton book or two. I also recently purchased my ticket to see Depeche Mode in December. 

Lately, other than doing school work, I've been living! I went camping, I tried salsa dancing for the first time, I learned how to use my rosary other than as an accessory, and I've been very happy overall. My depression hasn't bothered me in two weeks, give or take. I'm not expecting that part to last, but I'm thankful to have a reprieve.

What are your plans for the Summer?
